Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons

Ultimately,I'd say that Elena PERSONIFIED class for old-fashioned Russians who respect old-school values...but not just for Russians cuz we've seen all the comments of admiration from players who come from other countries....I don't recall the same degree of praise even for other morally-decent gals such as Davenport or Clijsters when they retired.

In contrast with Elena's Olympic Slam championship,there are other Russian players who've won the more traditional Slam events...and yet none of them represent the country so splendidly or command such loyalty as Lena does.When she led the Russian sweep on the podium in Beijing,it was an unforgettable moment for Russia and for tennis fans worldwide

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
